No single crux, just sustained, engaging climbing. In a lean year it becomes more technical and may be mixed as well. Some rock gear will likely be helpful (wish I'd had some)
Look for the nice rest ledge 30' up on the left. From there follow the path of least resistance around some steep columns, and bulges, finishing through a slot at the top.
Look for the iced up right-facing corner about 100m left of Icebreakers as you are facing the cliff.
Rappel the route from trees (fixed rap anchor) at the top.
Fat years med screws will do. Lean years, add a few stubbies, some small cams, a KB and baby angle.
